St. Aelfgith of Oxford
(Born c.AD 635)

St. Aelfgith was the holy woman who became tutor to the young Princess Frideswide of Lower Mercia and taught her to live a saintly life. St. Elgin's Church, at Fordingham, near Hull  in Yorkshire, is supposed to take its name from this Aelfgith, the festival being on the same day as that of St. Frideswide (19th October).

Edited from Agnes Dunbar's "A Dictionary of Saintly Women" (1904).
